Thru the Bible with J. Vernon McGee

Thru the Bible is a radio broadcast that is heard in 160 countries in over 100 languages teaching the Bible in five years.  The teacher,  Dr. J. Vernon McGee,  used to say that if you tune in five years from today, we’ll be at the same place in the Bible.  Although Dr. McGee has been with the Lord a few years now,  his broadcasts continue to change lives daily.

Thru the Bible recently received a message from a young doctor, who serves in an ambulance in Siberia, Russia.  Her crew travels from place to place, serving people. Part of her job is deciding if a patient should be taken to the hospital.

She wrote, “I find myself playing God, deciding who gets treatment and who doesn’t.  It’s such a tremendous pressure.  To alleviate stress, I started listening to your programs.  I never was interested in the Bible.  I am not an atheist, I just didn’t care.  I mean, who wants to read the Bible?  But this weight upon our shoulders opened a willingness in me.

“Without even kind of talking about it, I put on your broadcast in the ambulance.  As we hear the Bible being explained to us, we travel between patients.  Sometimes we catch ourselves crying together without speaking much to each others.  Sometimes we smile.  Sometimes we are hopeful.  Sometimes we feel God is in the ambulance, present with us.

“Through these months we have changed. We are not normal Russians anymore. I find myself praying to Jesus every morning, every evening, and at work as we go to patients.  Sometimes I can see what kind of work God is doing in the hearts of my colleagues, of the paramedics, of the driver, in my heart.  This is just amazing.”

About Kathleen

God delights in working through His people as they submit to Him. Jesus said to go into all the world and preach the good news to everyone (Mark 16:15). No matter where we live on this planet, people are separated from God because of sin. We ALL need a Savior, and there’s only ONE. It brings me great joy to share Christ with the lost and lonely. Over the years I’ve learned a great deal while facilitating Bible studies. I’ve found myself on college and university campuses, the beach, the streets, the hospital, the jail and the juvenile facility for incarcerated teens sharing God’s message of love. I also serve as an online missionary with Global Media Outreach. I’ve seen countless lives transformed when people turn away from sin and turn to Jesus. The changes God makes are real and lasting. These are some of my experiences. NOTE: My stories have been altered, removing any and all identifying factors.
